* The ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' movie ''A Sitch in Time'' was about Ron's parents unexpectedly moving to Norway, a move [[ThisLoserIsYou Ron]] did not like, at all. [[spoiler:Being eventually revealed to be a result of [[TimeyWimeyBall time traveling]], the entire move got completely reset'd out of existence in the end.]]

* Ur-example from the movies: ''MeetMeInStLouis'', one of the biggest films of 1943. Features the 1904 worlds fair, Creator/JudyGarland singing "The Trolley Song" and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," and, yes, the businessman father decides to stay in St. Louis for the sake of his family instead of taking a promotion to Chicago or New York.

* ''{{NUMB3RS}}'': Dad wants to sell the house, at least in part so that Charlie will finally grow up and move out on his own. The house sells quickly -- to Charlie, who promptly becomes his father's landlord.

* One of the worst episodes of ''FullHouse'' ever. There is a slight subversion in that out of the nine people living there, eight of them are completely in favor of it (and the move wouldn't take them out of San Francisco...just to a bigger house in a nearby or perhaps the same neighborhood). The only one against it was seven year old Michelle. So naturally, [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop the family listened to the seven year old instead of doing what was best for everyone else]], namely getting a house with MORE ROOM.

* In ''KenanAndKel'' across two episodes Kenan's Dad moves the family away so he can fulfill his livelong forest ranger dream, leaving Kel friendless. They move back when they find out how bad their new house and Roger's new job actually are.

* in ''EverybodyLovesRaymond'', Ray is lukewarm about moving to a house opposite his parents. The then-innocent Debra asserts that having the soon-to-be-born child's grandparents nearby, so Marie and Frank could drop in and help out, would be a really good idea.

* ''RocketPower'', "Shack Attack", with Ray Rocket's attempt to sell his diner in order to move to "Shoobietown" (that's what his kids are calling it, and they don't like the idea)

* ''BobbysWorld'' played with this in one episode, where they actually DID move, but to a house just across the street which was in every way identical to their old house except for having an extra bedroom for the new baby. This was lead into with an inversion of another trope: "Are we there yet?" "Yep!"

* ''CasperScareSchool'', the episode "Ghost Bust a Move" had Mr. Bradley wanting to move the family from Deedstown to a small desert town since he couldn't find any more decent sales jobs in Deedstown. His son Jimmy and Casper were less than thrilled about this idea and spend the enitre episode sabotaging the move, untill Mr. Bradley (after seeing Casper with Jimmy) decided to give up being a salesman and become a creature catcher, providing him with a new form of income in Deedstown.

* ''FreshPrinceOfBelAir'' featured a slight inversion in that Phillip Banks wasn't initially looking to sell the house; a real estate agent had shown up offering to buy it from him, explaining that it was his client's childhood home. Initially the entire family is against it. However, the agent continues to raise the offered price, winning over the family one by one until only young Ashley is the only one who will resist. Sure enough, her pubescent natter is enough to convince the family to remain where they are. However, in a minor subversion, the agent's client (who turns out to be none other than [[TheCameo Donald Trump himself]]) shows up to explain that the agent had the wrong address and withdraws the offer.

* ''TheSimpsons'': Homer gets a new job under businessman (and [[PunchClockVillain part-time super-villain]]) Hank Scorpio. He loves it, but Bart is held back in school, Lisa is allergic to everything in the area, and Marge becomes incredibly bored due to a self-cleaning house. By the end of the episode, the ResetButton has been pushed and the family is back in Springfield. (And Scorpio has seized control of the entire U.S. East Coast.)

* WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory once had an episode titled "The Big Move" in which Dexter was afraid that the family was going to move, so he tried to make the house as nice as possible so they'd want to stay. In the end it turned out that the titular Big Move was just moving the furniture around- but once he mentioned the idea of actually moving...
